ON A BRIGHT COLD SUNDAY MORNING IN FEBRUARY A CROWD OF CHATTERING LITTLE MEXICAN BOYS IN GRAY OVERCOATS AND FULL TRIMMED CAPS WERE MILLING ABOUT ON THE SIDE WALK IN FRONT OF A NEW YORK HOTEL. THEY HAD JUST RETURNED FROM AN EARLY CHURCH SERVICE, AND WERE PLAYING WITH YO-YOS (BALEROS IN MEXICO WHICH IS A SMALL TOP SIMPLE TOY CONNECTED TO A STRING ALL MADE OUT OF WOOD NOW WORTH $100 PESOS) IN THE SUNSHINE BEFORE GOING TO BREAKFAST. FUNNY EVERYONE LOOKED AT THEM LIKE THEY WERE CRAZY...WIERD...ALL THEY COULD DO WAS SMILE AND SAY HOLA...BUT LITTLE DID THEY KNOW THAT THE NIGHT BEFORE, IN NEW YORK'S CARNEGIE HALL, THEY HAD THRILLED AN AUDIENCE WITH THEIR FABULOUS AND HEAVENLY SINGING.
